  • Do not expose the battery to water or any other type of liquid, or allow the device to get wet.
  • Never short-circuit, damage, or heat the battery to approximately 60°C (140°F).
  • If the lithium-ion battery catches fire, it may burn even more violently if it comes into contact with water or moisture in the air.

Shipping Information

When transporting lithium-ion batteries, the following regulatory guidelines are followed:

  • UN 3481 (PI967) - Lithium Ion Batteries contained in equipment (Section 2). Equipment must be packed in strong outer packaging that conform to the below.
  • Net quantity of Lithium Ion cells or batteries per package:
    • Passenger: 5 kg
    • Cargo: 5 kg
  • The content of Lithium-ion is less than 100 Wh per battery.
  • Section II of Packing Instruction 965 for Lithium Ion Battery Pack.

Additional Requirements:

  • The equipment must be secured against movement within the outer packaging and must be equipped with an effective means of preventing accidental activation.
  • Cells and batteries must be protected to prevent short circuits.
  • The equipment must be packed in strong outer packaging constructed of suitable material of adequate strength and design in relation to the packaging's capacity and its intended use unless the battery is afforded equivalent protection by the equipment in which it is contained.
  • Each package containing more than four cells, or more than two batteries installed in equipment (including circuit boards).
  • Each consignment with packages bearing the lithium battery handling label must be accompanied with a document with an indication that:
    • the package must be handled with care and that a flammability hazard exists if the package is damaged;
    • special procedures must be followed in the event the package is damaged, to include inspection and repacking if necessary; and 
    • a telephone number for additional information.
  • Where a consignment includes packages bearing the lithium battery handling label, the words "Lithium Ion Batteries in compliance with Section II of PI967" must be placed on the air waybill, when an air waybill is used.
  • Any person preparing or offering cells or batteries for transport must receive adequate instruction on these requirements commensurate with their responsibilities.
